ROSS SPEARS Strange Law Case AgainsUhe Bund All Radical Leaders Apparently Are Prosecuted H.v I'KKSTON (iKOVEIl WASHINGTON - The law works in mysterious wnys it* wonders to perform. lake the case of Frit/. Kuhn. He and Ins Gorman - American Bund have been the largel-for ptiblic assaults, criticism, mass dcmonxlnltions, pickol- inps mid even n Congressional in- vcxligatun at the hands of the'Dion Commillcc. He WHS plugging for n form of government thai most people consider fundamentally contrary to the constitution and 11 jeopardy to the liberties upon which the country prides itself. A lot of people thought something ought to be done about it. It was. He was accused of larceny and l°iir|d guilty by a jury. Even the presiding judge suspected the jury was likely to smnck him down because they thought it might be n good idea on general principles. So he cautioned carefully against it. No matter what the jury might think, of the Bund and its German connect- tion, and Frit?. Kuhn in particular the jurist counselled (hat Kulin wa.s charged only with larceny of Bund funds and should be judged on that alone. The jury did its duty according to its lights. Legally il is a kind of skinner play in which the bail carrier has one thing in mind but .makes believe be is planning something else. The Buncl- Mer was convicted of a crime against the people in taking Bund funds, but it is a safe bet that most of the people wouldn't have cared a whoop if he had .jpcnl all the Bund's funds, down to the lust dollar. Cases even fuller of contradictions arc tho.-.:c of Earl Browdcr.

Downed in Flames Highway Disputed by Auto and Deer State Thinks Deer Had Had as Much Right 'as Car AI' Feature Service SEATTLE — A Wisconsin insurance company inquired whether the Slate ol Washington would assume liability for a salesman's automobile damaged by p. wild deer on a public highway. Answered Assistant Attorney General Browdcr Brown; "Dear Sirs: It is the constant intent of the State of Washington to make these (states) highways safe for motorists and also for pedestrians, among which latter class our wild deer would be numbered. Tills is the first knowledge we have bad of the incident men tioned in your letter. Our wild deer has not reported in. Without any further information than that given in your letter we would conclude that if your salesman was assaulted by one of our wild deer the incident would naturally fall under the heading of regrettable mistakes. "On the other hand, it may be that the state my have a claim against vour salesman for inflicting bodily damage and injuries on one of our wild deer and causing it to suffer excruca- ting pains and also subjecting it to great distress and agony both in mind and body. Such a claim must be with bold pending the results of further investigation on the part of our game wardens."

There was » wide-spread nat- iind annoyance at the whole business. And what methods \vys adopted to "do something about it"? Browdcr was a known Communist, lie had run for President on the Communist, ticket. Before a Congressional committee lie conceded (hu'rc was.a fairly close tic up bctwcn his organization and the Russian original. But it seems there was no law against that. In Mr. Browdcr's case it was quite legal to be a Communist. Nevertheless, one of the things developed was that Browdcr had traveled in Europe on a passport not bearing his Inic name. For that he wa.s indicted. He is. yet to he tried. Now lake the case of Bridges. He denies he is u Conuinini.st. He is ;i West Coast labor leader who has lied up more ships in his time than the neutrality act. He was brought up for examination as- lo whether he should be deported. He wa.s born an Australian but while he has lived 20 years in the United Stales be never lias become a citizen. It il cuuld be demonstrated that he wus the'.sort of Communisl who advocated- the overthrow of the govern- men by force, he would likely be deported.
